one of our chickens just squatted and laid an egg in our garden while my husband was standing there rather than going to the henhouse. Is that weird? None of the others were nearby so she wasn't being hassled or bullied (she is low bird of the 6).
I can't imagine why she'd do that. Anyone have thoughts about it?

They do that occasionally, maybe she didn't want to miss something by sitting in the nestboxes. Another idea is it's possible she gets harassed in the boxes, and it's possible she didn't know it was coming until she laid it.
